Is it one long beep played over, and over, and over? Because with my Gigabyte boards it indicates bad/improperly seated memory. Try wiggling the memory stick a bit or even stick it in a diffrent slot.

Well see if the RAM LED accualy lights up when you start it, aswell as the Video Card LED if there is one.

Either look on Gigabyte's site/motherboards manual or (if that doesn't work out) do a search for the brand of BIOS to see what the beep indicates. It's a lot easier to fix a problem if you can find out the exact cause, and you usually can when post beeps come into play.
